Scouting Report

7/12/17 6-foot-2 175-pound right-handed hitter initiates swing from neutral set up with relatively high knee to knee leg kick and stride.  Balance is good and an aggressive weight shift and turn are present. There is considerable bat wrap and hands do not work away from body in load creating an uphill swing path. Bat wrap creating length and leg kick also result in little room for error in regards to being on time.  There is obvious athleticism, and bat speed to swing as evidenced by recorded 88 mph bat exit velocity.

Defensively, Fansler is comfortable running and tracking in drop step.  He is decisive in reads and plays through ball on ground well.  Arm strength is of 88 mph on throws from outfield plays.  Foot speed of 7.06 in sixty would allow versatility in playing all three OF positions.

On mound FB sat 84 and touched 85 mph with some arm side run.  CB sat 69-71 with 12-6 shape with good depth and late, sharp break.  CB projects as next level out pitch.  Change up was thrown at FB arm speed and sat 76-77 with subtle arm side fade.  Fansler pitched from a high 3/4 arm slot demonstrating good balance, a loose arm and repeatable delivery.  There was some first base fall correctable through being more aggressive in driving over front side.
